(A portion of) Souvenir Poster from the 17th International Black Doll Show and Sale, 2004
I just read a very nice article by Fern Gillespie on the upcoming International Black Doll Show and Sale that will be held this Saturday, May 29, 2010, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
Reading the article brought back memories of my
I returned in 2005 to the International Black Doll Show as a collector (in 2004, I was an exhibitor/lecturer/book signer, so I didn't get to enjoy the show as much as I did in 2005). In 2005 I met artists Goldie Wilson, Lorna Paris (I saw her in '04, but didn't really have the opportunity to meet her), Jean Simmons, Lorna Miller-Sands, and Laura Tuzio Ross. I attended Miller-Sands breakfast in 2005. I still cherish the OOAK souvenir doll pin by Lorna.
Thanks Fran for your wonderful article, which helped conjure up the above pleasant memories.
